Long exposure taken looking north to Sydney from Bundeena Cliffs Royal National Park under a full moon. It was almost dead calm at sea level but the clouds above were rocketing past. The little white streaks in the sky are small startrails.

    Nice job – how long did it take to work out the 59s exposure? :)

  • Thanks Laurence – not long at all. The most time consuming part of this image was removing the moon itself which was over-exposed and detracted from the rest of the image.

    The motion effect is quite extraordinary Geoff!! Looks all the more surreal as the water underneath looks so still!! I got tips on how to produce massive prints even with a 10MP camera, you surely will need them as all your photos deserve life-like scale!

  • Thanks Douzy love to hear your tips but life-like scale for this image would be pretty big lol.

    This exposure certainly gives the feeling of movement of the clouds. Well done
